    Vera Lutter Interview with Elles × ParisPhoto
    Interview with Elles × ParisPhoto

    Elles × ParisPhoto: You first trained as a sculptor, how has this practice influenced your visual work?

    Lutter: Engagement with any medium informs the mind and trains the eye, but in addition to this, my work requires an ability to create physical structures and turn objects into cameras or modify already existing ones to suite my projects’ needs. The three-dimensional aspect of my practice may not be seen in the final product, but it’s still part of the work.

    Vera Lutter Feature in The New York Times Magazine
    Recent Project in Athens and Cape Sounio
    Feature in The New York Times Magazine
    September 22, 2021

    In early August, when The Times Magazine reached out to the photographer Vera Lutter about documenting ancient Athenian ruins, she was in her native Germany mourning her father, who died this summer. At the time, European news had been dominated by reports of wildfires in Greece — an ill omen for the clear skies and uphill hikes required to shoot atop the Acropolis.

    And Shannon Simon, a photo editor producing the project for the magazine, said they needed the pictures by September.

    On Monday, during an interview at her studio about her work that appears in the Magazine’s Voyages issue, Ms. Lutter had a question of her own to ask about the newspaper.

    “What I would love to hear from you,” she said, “is do you think they knew what they were getting themselves into?”

    Q&A with Artist Vera Lutter
    March 1, 2021

    From February 2017 to January 2019, New York–based artist Vera Lutter worked in residence at LACMA, creating a new body of work examining the campus architecture, galleries, and collection holdings. Lutter uses one of the oldest optical technologies still in use, that of the camera obscura. By building room-sized cameras and placing unexposed photo paper across from a pinhole opening, Lutter has adopted the camera obscura as her singular working method, resulting in photographs with an ethereal, otherworldly beauty.

    Prior To Demolition, These LACMA Galleries Took Selfies With A Little Help From The Pinhole Photographer Vera Lutter

    Lutter’s photographs bring us as close as possible to experiencing art as a gallery would, while also providing galleries with an opportunity to make art: The self-portraits possess the interiority of self-expression. Although the past can never be revisited, Lutter’s photographs have the potential to bring future generations into greater intimacy with these demolished buildings than was experienced by people while the buildings existed.

    In 2015, the Museum of London began Beyond Documentary, a three-year project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. This project has allowed them to expand the museum’s photography collection by collecting images which push the boundaries of traditional photography. The Museum of London has been collecting and displaying photographs since its creation. The collection’s roots lie in the photographs acquired from 1912 onward by its precursor, the London Museum, and images acquired in the early 1970’s for the museum’s new home at London Wall.
